Mskim Posted April 7, 2006 Share Posted April 7, 2006 As I suspected , everyhting has progressed and the taxotere did not have any effect. Her adrenal glands are now involved along with more lymph and the tumors in her chest are causing intense pain and shortness of breath. He said 3-6 months with no pallative care and as long as 9 months if we go for radiation and tarceva. She has an appointment with the radio-oncologist for some treatment to lessen her discomfort and said perhaps we could start Tarceva as soon as radiation is done. I knew the statistics. I felt that there was some way she would overcome. Today when the words actually came out of the doctors mouth it brought on a new reality and pain. There will be no more next year, next time or when we go and do this or do that. I am so tired. Blessings to you all. It seems that this was just another bad news day and I am not feeling postive or hopefull or anything else good. I just feel defeated. I am sorry this is so negative, it is what it is. Time to pray.
